Trainers are lifelong learners too. Even the most seasoned, experienced trainers must continue to develop professionally, so they will not fall behind in their own knowledge, tools and skills required to provide high-impact training programs and the best learning experience.
Last month, Matchy and Christopher, our two principal consultants, attended a 3-day European conference - The Interactive Techniques for Improved Learning Conference (ITIL) organized by the Thiagi Group. Together with participants joining from Europe, they had the opportunity to learn an array of new learning tools, as well as innovative strategies that can make face-to-face and virtual training more engaging and effective. They also learnt about the growing trends of the learning and development in the digital age.
Throughout the conference, they enjoyed variety of interesting topics that included:
7 Quick Learning Activities to Avoid Lecture
10 Principles for Improving Facilitation Skills
Flexing your Presence as a Facilitator
Practical Tips for Improving Evaluation & Transferring Learning
Rapid Instructional Design
Jolts! Wake up & Engage the Participants
Improving & Increasing Instructional Effectiveness through Debriefing
By taking back inspirations from this thought-provoking event, both of them believe that, with their fingers on the pulse of the training and development field, they will be able to provide training programs that are more interactive and engaging, resulting in better learner experience and greater value creation for clients in terms of organizational development and employee performance.
New technologies and innovations are driving the learning and development industry forward at supersonic speed.
